Percentage Energy from Fat Screener: Overview

In 1996, RFMMB staff developed a short assessment instrument to estimate an individual's usual intake of percentage energy from fat. The foods asked about on the instrument were selected because they were the most important predictors of variability in percentage energy from fat among adults in USDA's 1989-91 Continuing Survey of Food Intakes of Individuals (CSFII).
